Jose Mourinho looking for more goalscorers at Manchester United

    Wenger doubts Tottenham can fill Wembley this seas

"When this season I got the call that Matic wants to play for me, wants to play for Manchester United and he can make it happen, I thought he's the flawless player for me".

United finished sixth in the Premier League and weren't much of a threat domestically. And while he made no secret of his desire to see one more player come in, the 54-year-old is adamant it will not make or break United's season. Asked about their ambitions, Mourinho said: "Yes we can win [the Premier League]".

Last season Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the only player to reach double figures in league goals with 17, while Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney were the next best with just six goals each.

"He's injured. He needs time to recover", United manager Jose Mourinho said on Friday. "He is not ready to play tomorrow, so it is not something that's urgent". We are going to try to win the title, we are going to try to give a hard fight to the top teams in the Champions League and as you know I always loved the English cups'.

The Portuguese tactician guided the Red Devils to their maiden UEFA Europa League crown in his first campaign, and will get his second underway with a Premier League test against West Ham United on Sunday.

The United manager had outlined four positions he wanted to strengthen in to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward at the start of the transfer window, but only Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic have arrived at Old Trafford.

Mourinho delivered his Matic verdict in his usual deadpan fashion in his pre-match press conference ahead of hosting West Ham this afternoon.

Jose Mourinho admits that Nemanja Matic was the "perfect" type of defensive midfield player he coveted when he walked into the Old Trafford hotseat 15 months ago.

"For large spells of last season, we felt we should have been higher up in the league than we were and performances certainly warranted that for large periods as well".

"We have the confidence levels of a team who won a European competition". "I understand the reality of the market, of the numbers". I'm not in a position of crying, of moaning, protesting.

"I am happy with the effort the club did and that the club managed to do 75 percent of the work before the Premier League starts and until August 31".

"But I was not thinking of him because I never go to players who I think are the impossible mission".

"We have had a better pre-season than past year and we have the confidence levels of a team that has won a European competition and returned to the Champions League". We also got a central midfielder and a striker.

Mourinho says he is after another player "coming from the sides" to complete his summer business - leaving the door open for either a winger or a full-back.
